Having a kid doesn't validate your existence. Having a kid young comes with it's own burdens and takes a lot away from your life. It's not like when a kid at school bought the coolest toy of a year... they're just babies. I have a friend who is gonna be a father now and we really have no common ground anymore but I don't feel left out. I'm trying to live my life before I even think of having a kid. Look at it as a bonus for yourself.

It's better to become a father when you're fully ready, not on someone else's timetable. Enjoy your peace and free time while you can.
